8.5 Beta 1 for Multicharts.net?

Postby Traderji » 17 Nov 2012

Any ETA on the release of 8.5 beta for the .net version? I thought they were both going to be released at the same time?

Looking through the Release Notes there are so many improvements and new features I want to try!


PS: Can you provide some more detail on this -> "New upgraded API is used for LMAX data feed and broker"? Are there any release notes for new LMAX API?

I was wondering the same thing as it was said it is expected this week on the .net forum.

The next version of Multicharts .Net is expected within a week.

It is used internally for LMAX connection development. There's no user documentation for that.

So no visible changes for us end-users, or are we now able to see things like LMAX connections made/lost in the OPT Log tab?

In the LMAX .NET API 1.8.2 (released November 2012) there's a FailureResponse class with the Message property ("A readonly property that contains the error message that occured."), so I was hoping these might also now be incorporated in the MC log. :)

Well what I do know is that LMAX had freezing issues that seems to be improved now as it's 2 weeks since no freezing. Also with the beta 6165 micro orders are supported with LMAX, 1 contract is 1.000 and not 10.000 as it was before. I suppose these are some of the improvements.

We are going to add this feature in the next beta version.

We have analyzed this request in details and found out that there is no way how we can improve the log messages with the current LMAX API. We are contacting LMAX directly regarding this request.

Is this feature what is meant with the line "New upgraded API is used for LMAX data feed and broker" in the changelog for MC .NET Beta 2?

I'm asking because on regular MultiCharts 8.0 I was disconnected from LMAX today which took me 20 minutes to notice since there was no log message and the Trade Bar remained green (caused by a problem on their side). Obviously, I can't go back in time to replicate it on MC .NET Beta 2, hence the question.

Hello Josh,

Curently LMAX API does not provide ability to trace disconnection events. LMAX is looking into improving the API.

We are going to add LMAX disconnection events in MultiCharts 9.

Is this still the case? I'm asking since I'm missing this feature, and was informed by support two months ago that the wait was on LMAX's API update and that there was no ETA. I hope that by now some more progress has been made.

That's quick! Thanks Henry (and the programmers/engineers). :)
